Hair Frizz Control
Tips for hair frizz control, turn frizzy curls into smooth shiny curls.
If you'd like to sport springy, shiny, spirally curls but have found that as you age your curls have turned to a frizzy mess, there are several things you can do to regain control and restore some semblance of style.
Frizz Control Shampoos And Conditioners
For starters, recall that frizzy hair tends to be dry hair, so load up on conditioner in the shower, using a wide-tooth comb to distribute it through the hair, then rinse.
If your hair is super dry and coarse, try leaving in a bit of conditioner—enough that your hair feels slippery to the touch even after the rinse. Next, you need to select the right styling product for controlling frizz.
For tight, frizzy curls, go for a curl- controlling mousse (Clairol Frizz Control Restructurizing Mousse) or gel (L'Oreal Studio Line Lasting Curls or Vavoom Smoothing Gel).
For wavy hair that turns wiry when the humidity rises, try a frizz-busting leave-in conditioner like Clairol Frizz Control Taming Balm.
Don't brush or comb after application. Instead, separate and shape the curls with your fingers. Let your hair air dry, or blow-dry with a diffuser attachment. Want to know what the stylists do for photo- shoot-perfect results? Then try these tips:
Refine the curls around your face with a curling iron when the hair is dry; or set damp hair in jumbo pin curls, then blow-dry with a diffuser and allow to cool before unwinding. Either method, done carefully and correctly, should yield curls you can be proud of again.
It's also important to pamper your dry, frizzy locks with nourishing moisturizers, such as Ouidad Deep Conditioner, a lotion for frizzy, curly hair that has drawn raves from beauty editors across the country.
Ouidad's New York City salon, in fact, has evolved into something of a mecca for the curly- headed crowd.
And while you may not be able to afford to fly there and schedule an appointment, this top stylist does offer a full selection of hair-care products that are available to anyone, anywhere for great hair frizz control.
